A 3/4 finished project in an idyllic setting. Originally bought as a two-room bungalow, extensive work has been completed creating a loft conversion/second floor, with stairs ascending from kitchen/diner. to an upper story that extends the whole 10m length of the property. Illuminated by a wall-size double glazed window, and round window. (see pic) the roof was entirely replaced and the chimney made new.
House was completely rewired, with a new box, allowing for greater output. But this was where the work paused. All wiring downstairs completed including in new kitchen and bathroom/hot water. but upstairs required light fittings before completion.
Downstairs had a new bathroom including hot water fitted and a new kitchen with space for a dishwasher/washing machine. The downstairs kitchen/diner is a large 8x5m room, then the adjacent room as a second bedroom/ other room split with the bathroom.
The house is in a beautiful scenic setting, idyllic and ideal for cycling, hiking, and boar (photo) shooting. Volcanic hot springs and ski resorts are within easy distance. But in this village, you'll feel like a local. the next-door neighbors are super friendly one being an independent organic producer of vege, eggs, and meat. Everything literally on your doorstep. A food van drives through every morning. and there is a shop and post office within easy walking distance. Buses are regular.
Local costs of running are Hungarian Low.. unbelievably negligible. The tax has been waivered while empty, but the local council official may want 100 euros a year at most for the tax if occupied. The electric and water are on meters... no standing charges - only pay for what you use. There is also a well if you want to be minimalistic.
There is a large plot of land with the property stretching an impressive 1400 sq m. see pics. This is a blank canvass waiting for planting and design.
Truly a cheap dream home, in a place incredibly low cost to get to. The bus from Budapest is around 12-15 euros. (if you decided not to bring your car.)
A retreat, and haven, ready for personalization, and just that little bit to finish off. (upstairs lighting, loft wood panel roof (planks are there) decorating and flooring.) Garden. Done.
